The YES!



I have big news to share--the Society of the Sacred Heart accepted me to begin formation! I will enter the community as a Candidate beginning in August.

I am so thankful, so grateful, so humbled by this news. These women are amazing, and they have welcomed me into their lives, even to become one of their sisters. I am grateful to God for the calling, and grateful to the sisters for helping me to hear it and for hearing it with me.

There is (of course) much more in my heart, but I will end with a quote from St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, which I offer as a prayer for each of us:

"Give up all self-seeking and leave space for the Spirit of Jesus. Once this process is complete, everything goes like a vessel powered by steam: it is the breath of the Spirit that moves everything along."

Amen!

Juliet, that's awesome news. Yay! I know that the next part of your journey is going to be wonderful and confusing and upside-down and...

I've been following your blog as a silent lurker for a while (I found you from Sr Susan CJSP's blog) and thought it was time I revealed myself.

Oh, wonderful!

And thank you so much for the quote. I am printing it out and putting it on my desktop until my path becomes clear.

Auntie Knickers said...

I can't even imagine taking your path, but I congratulate you for knowing it's the one for you and that you have been accepted. I will keep you in my prayers as you continue this journey.

Sophie's Daughter (Juliet) said...

I'm glad you like the quote, Singing Owl! I love it more when I recall that she was living in the era of the steamship--that it was invented and became widely used during her lifetime.

Auntie Knickers, thanks for your prayers. Sometimes I can't imagine it either, but I know that it's right for me.

Blessings!

Sophia said...
